It usually consists of 2 trumpets, a trombone, and sometimes a tuba or even a French horn. Really, it can be any combination of brass instruments, including four of the same.

Brass Quarted is four of any brass instrument..........the Canadian Brass is a Quintet. Two trumpets, a french horn, a trombone and a tuba. They are a trip.
Quartet means 4.

It is correct to say that a quartet is 4, but a "brass quartet" has a specific instrumental makeup, so it is not correct to say that a brass quartet it 4 of any brass instrument. 4 trombones, for example, would be considered a trombone quartet, not a brass quartet.

Music is a language and, just like any other language, proper terminology must be employed.
